    Hello

    trying to a make customization to the adelle theme through css
    site Im working here: http://www.caitlinandcosbie.com

    I would like to add a white background wrapper like this site and have a separate color background of the site:
    http://thesmallbizlife.com
    or
    http://dialysisofhealing.wordpress.com (also using same theme).

    I know how to add the background to the site, but I dont know how to create the wrapper container body section (not sure what its called) to be white like the example site through css.

    Any suggestions would help. Thanks

    The blog I need help with is elementobasicomusic.wordpress.com.

  2. Your easiest path is to use a theme that already has a white container, such as Adelle (which I see you've now switched away from) or Twenty Twelve and then choose a custom background through Appearance —> Background.

    There are techniques for doing this with (almost) any theme, but it would require the Custom Design upgrade and would vary from theme to theme.

  3. The blog here http://www.caitlinandcosbie.com/ is a WordPress.org install. It's not a free hosted WordPress.com blog and those are the only blogs we provide support for here. WordPress.com and WordPress.org are completely separate and have separate logins.
    If you don't have a username account at WordPress.org, click http://wordpress.org/support/ and register one on the top right hand corner of the page that opens, so you can post there.

  4. Hi there,

    I have a self-hosted blog. I too would like to know how to put a white background on my site.

    Please help.

    My self-hosted site is:

    rubieslife.com

    Thank you all!

  5. I checked http://www.caitlinandcosbie.com and http://rubieslife.com and I found that the background color for the main content containers are white, so it looks like you figured this out.

    If you need further help with WordPress.org self-hosted sites, you should ask at http://wordpress.org/support/
